Look at your current car – how many features does it have? Is it enough to count on one hand? It's likely that there's plenty of safety technology and the odd bit of infotainment thrown in. That's fairly standard. In the new Infiniti Q60, however, you'll need a few more hands to count all of the amazing features (including a supreme infotainment system) – plus, it's a beautiful car, so you'll be turning heads wherever you go.

Ever wanted a car that's built around having a great time behind the wheel? This is that car.

Does the Infiniti Q60 perform well on the road?

The Infiniti Q60 comes with the option of having a 3.0-litre, twin-turbo V6 under the bonnet. The block puts out 298 kilowatts of power and an impressive 475 Nm of torque at the low end. For a V6, that sort of performance is excellent, and when you put your foot down you'll feel the heart coursing all the way through the car.

It's a rear-wheel-drive, which every sports car should be. It features a seven-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters and a torque converter. The engineers that designed this car had power and economy in mind. When you want to experience that performance, put your foot down and you'll shoot from 0 to 100 kph in just over 5 seconds.

If you want a faster car, you should expect to pay a lot more, and get fewer features in the cabin to play around with. That's the beauty of the Infiniti Q60 – it's a car that takes care of everything, both inside and outside.

Does it look the part?

The simple answer to that question is – of course. The Infiniti Q60 is curvaceous and aggressive, with 19-inch alloy wheels as standard, wrapped in premium Bridgestone tyres.

The two-door coupe has sleek lines and modern lights, and looks gorgeous from every angle. From behind, it fits the bill for a sports car, and from the front it looks stately and elegant, with just a hint of what it can do with the pedal to the metal.

Aside from looking fabulous, the Infiniti Q60 comes equipped with a number of features to help with driver awareness. There's an adaptive front lighting system, that reads the road ahead, adds in the direction you're steering, and turns the headlights to more effectively light up where you're going. This includes up or down hills, and around tight corners.

There's also an around-view monitor, which gives 360-degree camera shots of the car surrounds. You can peek around a corner or check a blind spot when you're reversing into a park at a busy shopping centre. Be confident when you're reversing, because the Infiniti Q60 allows you to be.

How does it make driving more fun?

You can experience your favourite tunes in the highest quality with the Bose premium audio system. You'll be treated to 13 speakers, including tweeters and a subwoofer, to give you the crisp notes you've always wanted for long road trips along the coast.

There's also a satellite-navigation system that will not only get you where you want to go, but also feed you live traffic information. This is perfect for getting to work on time, and avoiding the rush hour jams.

To get behind the wheel of this car and see all of these features in real life, head into the Peter Warren Automotive Infiniti dealership in Sydney today. This car is so packed to the brim with technology that you'll need more than just a test drive to try everything out!
